Loved it! Didn't want to unload our truck so the secure parking was great. Reception lady was very nice. Very clean pool and grounds, lots of flowers. Super clean. Best location, great surf right out front.

My husband and I stayed there one night on our way south to take a break from driving. The hotel is right on the highway although you do not hear the highway noise. It is right in front of the beach so you can be in the pool and see the ocean or in the restaurant and see the ocean. The ocean in that area is pretty rough so it is really for experienced surfers only but it was great to be able to sit in the yard (with grass) and just stare at the water. The rooms were large, clean, with hot water, AC and WiFi.

It was the perfect place for a pit stop. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The rooms are large, nicely decorated and very comfortable, a/c, hot water, tv, security box, small personal patio and a pool. Breakfast is included and served in their restaurant and bar next door. Located on the beach, too rough for swimming but great for surfing. Secure parking too. We will be back.

Room Tip: I like #2 next to the bar but there are others that look upon the pool or beach

The hotel seems charming but is not an ideal place to stay because of comfort and noise issues. The beds were very uncomfortable. There wasn't much privacy for the rooms because the restaurant is on one side and the pool is on the other. It was very noisy due to people swimming in the pool late and loud music at the restaurant. It was however fun to watch the surf competition taking place on the beach on Friday/Saturday afternoons. Hermosa beach is a cute quaint beach but doesn't have a ton to offer other than surfing for skilled surfers. In addition, the service at the hotel was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor for more privacy.

The rooms were great. Loved the pool right outside our back door and the lounge chairs with an ocean view. We loved hanging out with the iguanas poolside and named the biggest one "surf dog" while we were there.
